    A fun one for my grandson and all young at heart –

    Little Red Riding Hood by Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs

  • Also known as “Lil’ Red
    Riding Hood,” is an updated version of the Little Red Riding Hood
    fairy tale, with the lead singer portraying the wolf.
  • Written by Ronald
    Blackwell and produced by Stan Kesler, this was the second big
    semi-novelty hit for the Texas band Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs. Their
    debut hit “Wooly Bully
    also made it to #2.
  • On June 5,1966, “Lil’ Red Riding Hood” by Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs entered Billboard’s Hot Top 100 chart at position #99; and on July 31st it peaked at #2 (for 2 weeks) and spent 18 weeks on the Top 100 (and for 7 of those 18 weeks it was on the Top 10). It also reached #2 on the Canadian RPM Top Singles chart.

      That’s way cool, @Guitargeezer-Jack , costume and all. You are really pulling out the stops. 😂

      Have fun and travel safe on your trip. Sounds like a great time.

      I remember “Wooly Bully” as that was the first music that I “bought”. Mom paid for it, but it was at my request.

      Appreciate your remarks Kevin and Mike. There is a guitarist calling himself “Guitar Entertainer Zeus” on board this Viking Venus. He plays his sets acoustically with enhanced vocal effects. Very talented guy – plays whatever you want.
